Good morning. I was watching the festivities on PCN (Pennsylvania Cable Network) this morning and @720 Punxsutawney Phil
saw his shadow. Six more weeks of winter. I'm looking out the window now and it's snowing. :pirate:
Who's got the rum?

The weather guesser lied, it wasn't 72 degrees. It's 75 right now. 8) I should have worn shorts when I went to the state park.

I'm not betting the weather on some animal that lives in a hole in the ground. [smilie=cheeky-grin.gif]

I've got better things to bet on like....when & where will Jimmy end up this year

Hi Alphabits,

We don't really have anything like the groundhog day thing.

In a lot of Oz the traditional four seasons have little meaning. For example in the "top end" along the northern coast, we have two seasons - The Wet and The Dry. The temperature is fairly constant with the monsoon rains and humidity characterising the wet season.

Around where I am (Sydney) the indigenous had six or seven seasons, usually marked by the available foods, whether that was certain fruits or the arrival of certain fish.

Also to add to this, only a tiny area has ground covering snow, that really only lasts a couple of months, so the psychological boost of trying to second-guess the end of winter isn't so prominent in peoples minds.

That is not to say we don't have silly traditions and ceremonies... For example:

Interesting. In my ignorance, I guess I just figured Australian seasons were similar to ours, just offset six months.

And actually, Two-up sounds a lot more rational than relying on a four-legged fur ball for meteorological data. :roll: :lol:

Ha! Once a year they allow me to crawl out of my hole. I predict 12 more months of dumbassity, they give me a cookie and then banish me back to the place where enlightenment goes to die.

If enlightenment died, your name is listed on the death certificate as the cause of death. :P
